I am supposed to have my head elevated 30° while in bed, and the drains come out the left side (my preferred side to sleep on) and I was struggling to find a position conducive to both healing and sleep. Yesterday afternoon, Kevin suggested that I sleep in the recliner. I've taken many weekend naps there, so I know it was possible and said I'd give it a try.
This also put Kevin in our bed, instead of the guest bed, and it put his mom Linda in the guest bed, instead of on the couch. I slept amazingly well. I woke up for a restroom trip around 2, but went right back to sleep with no problems, discomfort, or medication.
This morning I took the prescribed medication and passed out for a couple of hours. I think it's time to try cutting the Percoset in half again. LOL A coma was NOT the plan. After I woke up, Grammy (Linda) made a bacon, egg, and cheese croissant. I have to say that the service in this establishment is ★★★★★. I highly recommend it if you find yourself in town post-mastectomy.
I'm ready to settle in and watch the NASCAR festivities, knowing that many of my friends are right there at Kansas Speedway. I'll see if I can spot them. If not, maybe I'll lie and say I did. :)
